Police crackdown on anarchist movement in Czech Republic
Arrests, home searches, interrogations, intimidation, confiscation of servers and other persecutions are results of recent wave of repressions against anarchist movement in the Czech Republic. Early on Tuesday of the 28th April, 2015 the Counter Organised Crime Unit of the Czech police (UOOZ) commenced operation Fenix targeting various individuals and organisations connected with anarchist movement across the country. Police operation was aimed on anarchist and left wing radicals who were supposed to commit series of arson attacks. Based on the information provided by the police, local news source Lidovky.cz has speculated that Network of Revolutionary Cells is responsible for the attacks.

On Friday 15th May a cop car parked outside the police station on Hostivařska Road in Prague was set on fire. This is the result of premeditated sabotage carried out by the M.A.P. cell. We were following the actions of the Network of Revolutionary Cells, but hesitated before turning our anger into direct action of attack. For a long time we were tormented by fear and indecision.
Then a change of direction happened. On 28th April the police launched an attack on the anarchist movement of the country we live in,and this facilitated our decision to act. We think other choices of this kind will follow. Perhaps a burnt out police car represents just a small step compared with what must be done to put an end to capitalism. (more…)

Police have just announced that 3 people being held in custody were accused of terrorism. According to Czech law the minimum penalty for this crime is 12 years and it is one of the very few crimes with possible life sentence. Two other people are accused of not reporting this crime and the last two of illegal arms (police reported they found an explosive timed device made of a steel tube). The case is apparently very serious. Terrorism charge gives the police some extra power and rights.
Other people arrested are being investigated for “supporting the movement seeking to violate human rights and freedom”, which is a crime designated for use against hate movements [racist/far-right].
Police released this story to the public: those accused planned an attack with Molotovs on a train transporting Hyundai cars. Two of them should have obtained
the “explosives”, two others should actually attack the train, the last three should work as scouts. The attack should have taken place last November but never happened for an unknown reason, it is possible it was just delayed.
The police say that all of them belong to “Conspiracy of Cells Of Fire”. All people were under surveillance at least since last September.

Today police evicted the only squatted place in Prague, Cibulka. In a massive raid 200 cops with water-cannon and even a helicopter arrested at least 12 people, at least 4 people were injured. There were around 50 people present in the place when the police came, most of them left the premises voluntarily. Four people occupied the roof but were forcibly removed. It is still unclear what exactly happened as police closed off the whole surrounding area. At least four people are in hospital now. At least 12 people are being held.
Cibulka was occupied by squatters two years ago. Soon they managed to sign an agreement with the owner, semi-public company Autoklub. For two years it was used legally, but that did not prevent police from raiding the place several times. Last month the contract was recalled by the owner. Yesterday evening the owner made a formal complain to police, today the place was evicted. It is an unprecedent speed of police work in the country where it is usual to wait 8 or more years for a court verdict and generally the justice system is very slow and ineffective…

people were arrested, part of them only questioned and immediately
Three people were charged of attempted terrorism (12-20 years of
prison), some others are officially investigated of the same crime but
were released. Even others were charged of not reporting this serious
crime. Three people were taken into custody. As some servers were
confiscated most of Czech anarchists websites are down.
Video: Conspiracy of Cells of Fire – Phoenix Project – An account of the FAI/IRF Project 'Phoenix' (Black International)
Sunday, April 12th, 2015
English subtitled version of the film giving the account of the early part of the Phoenix Project, international project of sabotage and attack with over a dozen hits in a variety of different countries.
Dedicated to Alfredo Cospito and Nicola Gai, Olga Cell FAI/IRF, who took responsibility for the laming of CEO Roberto Adinolfi of Ansaldo Nucleare.
“We are here, where everything starts now.”
The Project of ‘Phoenix’ is the unfolding of a hidden map marking one of the routes to the Atlantis of practical theory. An unknown and lost continent that exists beyond the edges of the burning cities of the interzone. Created through action, dialogue and ideas and organised informally with anarchic principles of permanent autonomous attack, revolutionary solidarity and internationalism. A sequence of attacks by different radical direct action groups around the world, breaking the silence of isolation and striking back again against the prison societies of the techno-industrial system.
The imprisoned members of CCF are charged with instigation for the attacks, Spyros Mandylas and Andreas Tsavdaridis were arrested and charged for act #4 in the project, sending a parcel-bomb to the former commander of the anti-terrorist agency, Dimitris Xorianopoulos, whilst Christos Rodopoulos is reportedly accused of the mailing of the parcel bomb to Dimitris Mokkas, chief prosecutor in the CCF case, as act #6.
The Phoenix project is now renewed through the 2015 attacks in Chile, Czech Republic and Greece, with the comrades within the territory of Czech Republic initiating the campaign “Let’s destroy repression“. The story of the Phoenix continues to be written…

Project Phoenix 2015 "Let's destroy Repression": Arson of police vehicle by 'FAI/IRF – Poetry of Fire Cell' (Czech Republic)

Statement of FAI/IRF Poetry of fire cell
On Thursday 26th March 2015 we make an arson attack on a police car in Olomouc city. Attack against repressive machinery means fighting for freedom. Because where repression is needed, there is no place for liberty to bloom. There is no place without repression. Repression is an instrument of the state and capital. Repression and authority are the two sides of the same coin. Repression is global. Repression comes from the state as well as from the private sector. It cooperates all around the world. Everyone has met some kind of repression except those who do not want to live their own lives. Those who bow their heads and accept the orders voluntarily. Those who refuse the existing order knows the consequences. Everyone who even only tries to get his unpaid wage by means of direct action, people in a wild strike, people attacking the billboards or people looting during the riots know it. We are happy about every demonstration of insurrection which crosses bonds of legality, but only in case there is no demand of repression against the others. One day people attack the police to fight against taxes, the day after they demand stricter law against homeless people and “unadaptables”, the third day they become homeless themselves and want more money from taxes on social spending, the fourth day they find some job and try to avoid paying taxes again. Conditions in which we live influence our lives, but we must not use them as an excuse. What is the most important are the choices we make. In every situation we can succumb or we can resist.
We, the anarchists, do not let anyone decide about our lives. We feel only pity for people who try to find their path through the sad reality at the expense of the others. They bend their backs in the face of the Existent and make excuses about the objective conditions. We, the anarchist, we fight for a world without repression, without compulsion. Therefore we fight against every kind of repression continuously, regardless if it hits peaceful demonstrations of students on the other side of the world or the criminals in our town. We feel solidarity and sincere affinity with those who fight for destruction of repressive machinery, for anarchy. Rebels, insurrectionists, anarchists, revolutionaries, fighters…
Currently the Greek political prisoners continue their continuous fight against repression. Network of fighting prisoners (NFP), Maziotis, Gournas, members of CCF and many others. All these decided not to give up their fight and to resist repression even in captivity. Our attack is a gesture of solidarity with their fight. And therefore our attack is part of the struggle for anarchy, in the aim of helping the hunger strikers to win their fight.
Fighting against repression is also fighting against militarization. Our act also notes against passing of US army convoy, which will demonstrate its power in our neighborhood. We are not afraid of soldiers and cops, we are scared of society, which lets the elites to commit the worst atrocities, without resistance, obediently. Society of zombies. Our attack and our statement is contribution to Project Phoenix 2015 “Lets destroy Repression”. Project Phoenix is a game. We can play the game or we can finish it every time we want. We can do what we want to do. It is creative game played according to our rules. Everyone can join the game. Everyone can leave the game. When nobody plays the game it will cease to exist. This is part of life. It is only our choice. Some new game will appear sooner or later. Most important is to play according to our rules. The game which arouse passion and joy. It is also a destructive game at the same time. Destructive for the authorities.
Project Phoenix is solidarity praxis and it can be our own combative analysis. To get to know each other in combat. To plan how to aim our guns better against the Existent. This way we connect now and continuously. We connect destructively and creatively. Creative, not because we would like to create something in this society, but because everything which will be created in this society will be used as a tool of oppression unless it is destructive for the Existent.
We keep the new world in our hearts. The world where creativity is not turned into the tool of repression. In the recent world exists only one fight for freedom. A fight which is creative and full of joy for those who do not want to be chained. A fight which is destructive for the chains. There are many ways how to fight for a more beautiful world.
We have also received the messages from the anarchists abroad. First mentions of current anarchists of praxis, R.O. – Revolutionary Struggle, CCF, FAI/FRI, etc. appeared about 3 years ago [in Czech Republic]. Official anarchism, and state and capital try hard to suppress every combative tendency. When we read the information about official movement in Greece, it seems to us, that there is the same situation in our country. The proof is that nobody here informed about the hunger strike till now. Everyone has their own timing but it seems that some calls meet only deaf ears. There can be various reasons. One of them surely is the situation here. Therefore it is important for us to mention briefly the context of anarchism in Czech.

Every phrase written on the gray walls of the dead cities, every solidarity banner, every punch with brass knuckles to the face, every theft, every car set on fire, every destroyed ATM, every blasphemy, is blackmailing the world of Power and civilization, against each representative and servant of system and keeps alive the spirit and pushes it forward. Spirit of individual armed revolt in a never ending war against Authority… Now is time when free individuals – men and women – take decisions which overcome the fear of death.
Strength to the imprisoned members of CCF and to all the imprisoned anarchists of action around the world.

Network Revolutionary Cells – Flames of anger hit the Řízkárnu restaurant where the employer does not pay wages (Czech Republic)
Tuesday, March 17th, 2015
Communiqué: Flames of anger hit Řízkárnu.
On Sunday, March 15, 2015 in the morning an arson attack against two cars that provide food delivery from Prague restaurants Řízkárna was made. This fiery sabotage is our contribution to the fight against the exploitation of workers and against the dictatorship of capital. Owner Řízkárny Vladimir Krulec is a known capitalist bastard. Hundreds of people paid with their hard work just so that he could appropriate all its fruits. Gross exploitation, bullying, intimidation – these are his methods. Anger turned into offensive action is our answer.
We fight, but we do not try to rescue or organize others. Fiery sabotage against Řízkárně is our subversive response to the world driven by capitalist relations. A response which rises from the subversive practices, which can be expressed in a thousand ways in different places. Today destructive flames in Řízkárnou, tomorrow in other ways and elsewhere. Capitalist relations are fraught with all areas of life. We find, therefore, a large battlefield. Everywhere in this field, it is possible to express our subversive relationship to the dictatorship of Capital. Social class of wage-labor countries. All we have to overcome. Out of the ruins of the existing misery grow free life. Onward!

Ústí nad Labem: Communique + Video for arson of police car by 'Proletarian Solidarity Cell / Network Revolutionary Cells' (Czech Republic)

DOWNLOAD FLV VIDEO: Police car burned
In solidarity with anarchist prisoners all over the world, in the morning of Saturday 30th August 2014, we made an arson attack on a police car, which stood in the street in front of the station Truhlářova in Ústí nad Labem. The event has become a fragment of a mosaic of solidarity activities during the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners. It was announced for 23 to 30 August 2014.
Francesco Puglisi, André Mazurek, Yiannis Dimitrakis, Olegovich Igor Kharchenko, Rebecca Rubin, Bill Dunne, Nikos Maziotis and many others, known and unknown. They were imprisoned for their anarchist attitudes and actions. Our arson attack against the police is a solidarity message sent to all of them. The communication of this direct action is simple. In the ongoing class war the State puts in jail the people when they actively resist. A good sign of solidarity with the imprisoned comrades is therefore continuing the resistance. In opposition to the same goals with the same means that our friends often chose before being placing in the cells of the State.
There is no doubt that the purpose of prison is not only isolation and the subjection of detainees. In a broader sense, it is their task to influence those who survive outside of a prison cell. They intimidate every resisting person and try to break his/her will to fight. Anarchist groups around the world show that to achieve this goal is virtually impossible. While the States imprison many anarchists, others -despite the risks- continue to practice rebellion. Our arson attack in Ústí nad Labem is a powerful reminder that suffocating our friends behind the prison walls will not smother our libertarian will to resist. On the contrary, every act of State repression against the anarchist movement recreates other rebellious passions. They manifest themselves in a variety of direct actions and will continue until all the comrades leave prison.

A few words and pictures from the International Week of Solidarity for Anarchist Prisoners (Czech Republic)
Monday, September 8th, 2014
Last week was the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners. Dozens of events from South America to the Far East. The anarchist collectives around the world in various ways tried to raise awareness of imprisoned comrades and fellow soldiers. And we, along with other groups and individuals supporting the Anarchist Black Cross tried to highlight this issue. And not only that. We have tried to express solidarity to our imprisoned friends and comrades with the intensification of correspondence (letters and sending packages). We put up hundreds of flyers and stickers. Held a public screening of a film about the fate of Sacco and Vanzetti, upgrading in cities, in prisons, courthouses and even a police station. In Ústí nad Labem, according to a communiqué signed by the group “Proletarian Solidarity” ‘a police car was damaged as symbolic support to imprisoned anarchists in the world’. Although the last week in August is unfortunately not optimal for broader mobilization, perhaps the International Week of Anarchist Prisoners served its purpose. It recalled the need for solidarity not only for imprisoned comrades and friends, but throughout the movement as such. (more…)

Communique for the attack of a police car in Prague
In Prague on Feb 13th 2014, a Molotov attack on a police car took place on Hostivařská street. The attack was claimed by the Black Brigade, an autonomous network of revolutionary cells. The blow struck the defender of the capitalist system and was an act of solidarity with victims of police repression, in this case those who were evicted from Neklanka squat on 7th February 2014 and for those who stand trial after being arrested during the eviction for defending the squat.
Unsurprisingly, we waited a long time for our enemies response, as was the case of an attack on a police car in Janov, an event only briefly mentioned in the Comprehensive situational report by the Ministry of Internal Affairs. We do not expect that the message of our actions will be spread by the enemy, and the fact that the event is almost silent does not mean that the content of the actions ceased to exist. We have our own channels and we intend to use them to explain our actions. (more…)
